Okies, so long story short, got some money from a long service payout some years ago. Did some research on here. Because I live in a small town with only two guitar shops, and being Australian Lefty Bassist, not much option to pick up an instrument an give it a try. Ordered a Stingray 5 from the catalogue : fretted, wood grain clear finish, maple neck satin, pearloid guard. Told it would take 3 months to make and deliver. 5 months later, no sign. Got angry, asked for complete refund (I paid upfront) and dealer got panicked and promised some recourse. Anyway, 7 months later received my instrument and was lovely. Still love it today. Question: it's not a custom? It's a factory made customer order. What do we call them?
